Share Your World: 11 March


Sharing My World This Week

If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?  If you don’t think Heaven nor God exists, you might want to answer by saying something outrageous, just for fun!

If there is a heaven and I get to go there I hope that God will say. “There are some people and animals here who can’t wait to see you.”

What do you regard as the lowest depth of misery?

Whether for me personally or for humanity, in general, I guess feeling that there is no hope that anything will change for the better would be about as bad as things could get.

What do you think about when you’re alone in your car?

I don’t drive and don’t own a car so the only time I am ever alone in any car is if I am waiting for someone who is doing an errand. Generally, I’m thinking I hope that they won’t be long coming back.

How would you rate your memory? 

It’s probably average for a person of my age. I write a shopping list and leave it on the kitchen bench, but then I remember most of the things I wrote down anyway. I go into a room and forget why; I forget people’s names, names of songs and names of movies.

I remember the names of all the pets we ever had, favourite toys I had fifty or sixty years ago, my favourite places, favourite times with special people. I think that’s pretty normal.

And lastly:

What’s one song that always cheers you up, no matter how blue you’re feeling?

I’ve got nothing for this but I once read a story, I think it was by Isaac Asimov about a musician who was asked to create a rhythm that would be played to assist in treating people suffering serious depression. He chose “When The Saint’s Go Marchin’ In.”

Taswegian1957

I was born in England in 1957 and lived there until our family came to Australia in 1966. I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, where I met and married my husband David. We came together over a mutual love of trains. Both of us worked for the railways for many years, his job was with Australian National Railways, while I spent 12 years working for the STA, later TransAdelaide the Adelaide city transit system. After leaving that job I worked in hospitality until 2008. We moved to Tasmania in 2002 to live in the beautiful Huon Valley. In 2015 David became ill and passed away in October of that year. I currently co-write two blogs on WordPress.com with my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania. In November 2019 I began a new life in the house that Naomi and I intend to make our retirement home at Sisters Beach in Tasmania's northwest. My current housemates are Cindy, my 14-year-old Staffy-Lab X dog and Polly the world's most unsociable cat who is seven.
